TOP names from the world of music and television will once again perform on Weston beach this year when a star-studded event returns to town.Channel Four has announced that its pop spectacular T4 on the Beach will be staged in the resort for the third year running this summer.Last year 30,000 music lovers packed onto Weston's beach to watch the likes of Will Young, McFly and The Pussycat Dolls.Channel Four and T4 organisers, Done and Dusted, are expected to announce the dates for this year's gig by the end of this month. North Somerset Council says it has had to fight off stiff competition from other resorts to successfully secure the musical event for another year.Leader of North Somerset Council, Alan Hockridge, said: "The event adds more than £3million to the local economy and provides the resort with prime time TV coverage worth almost £2million."Channel Four has only ever returned to a resort once for its annual pop spectacular and has never been back to the same town on three occasions.
